5 Lessons on Mentorship| EP. 124


“Following Jesus is the hardest thing you will ever commit to.” // Garret Barbush


On EP. 124 Garret continues the conversation on mentorship lessons from Paul. As we read through 2 Timothy 4, we see another charge from Paul to Timothy. Men, following Jesus is the hardest thing you will ever have to commit to, but it’s an adventure! Paul gives Timothy 5 lessons to help him in his faith journey. Preach the Word, keep your head up, endure hardship, tell others about Jesus, and go and do the work. This faith journey is never easy, but it’s time to get to work.

  • Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.” // 2 Timothy 4:2-5
